Dems keep wailing about "our broken immigration system" How was it broken?
Immediately after that is the phrase "We need to fix our broken immigration system."
Anyone heard that phrase before? Like, a million times? It's a constant drumbeat by the Democrats and Obozo. For example, exactly one day after Obama's decree, the WH issued a "fact sheet" titled "The economic benefits of fixing our broken immigration system." Here's the first sentence:
The President’s...Executive actions will help secure the border, hold nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants accountable and ensure that everyone plays by the same rules. Acting within his legal authority, the President is taking an important step to fix our broken immigration system.Of course everything in red is a brazen lie, but right now I want to focus on the "our broken immigration system" bullshit.
Question for you lying sacks of Gruber: In what respect, exactly, do you claim our immigration system was "broken"?
C'mon, Gruberheads, tell us. Exactly how you claim it was "broken."
Because of course it wasn't broken.
What Dems and liberals characterize as "broken" is that the system had the legal authority to deport those in the U.S. illegally. Two years ago Obama issued an executive order allowing these former children to stay in the U.S. indefinitely, but the decree only applied to the former children. So in theory their parents could still be deported. Which would--to use the exact quote by Dems--"rip families apart."
See how neatly they did that? Parents sneak into the U.S. illegally, and then if the U.S. were to deport one of those parents--even for the most serious crime--we would be guilty of "ripping families apart."
Not a whit of attention paid to the fact that said parent entered the U.S. illegally. Not a moment of attention to the fact that the parents were free to take their "children" back home with them. Because the Left wails that this would be taking the poor innocent kids away from their friends and schools and the place they'd grown up. Can't have that.
So decree by decree, the Left set up the very conditions they now claim are the "broken" aspect of immigration law. But the real "broken" part to the Democrats was that the then-existing system wasn't legalizing the flood of new Democrat voters that the Left wanted to cement their political lock on the presidency.
Of course they can never admit that because doing so would alienate a big chunk of hard-working, taxpaying Dem voters. Can't have that. So...
We're waiting, Democrats. Tell us exactly how you think the system was broken. Don't just keep repeating "It's broken!"--tell us exactly what you claim is broken.
Really, we're all quite curious to find what you consider was the "broken" part you keep wailing about.
